We’re guessing it’s highly unlikely for you and a friend to get together to drop your very expensive phones from midair just to see if they survive even though you know they really won’t.

It all starts with the host introducing the drop test, saying Google and Apple’s 2016 flagships are going to be suspending 1,000 feet in the air by a drone before being released and going into free fall.
Ouch! That had to hurt.
Neither the Pixel nor the iPhone 7 survive the drop test. Both displays shatter into an unusable state, which isn’t a surprise. If we had to pick one that looked less damaged, it’d be the Pixel. The iPhone 7’s back was full of scratches and dents while the Pixel’s remained largely undamaged.
There’s no way any phone in the world today would survive a 1,000-foot drop, but it’s fun to watch thousands of dollars worth of phones be blown away on the obvious.
